Over the past few weeks, certain incoming messages are causing the
information store to shut down with error messages like:
memory could not be written.
Application error has occured and an application log is being generated.
An error was returned from the messaging software the Internet Mail Service
uses to process messages on the Microsoft Exchange Server. It is possible
that the piece of mail being processed at the time will not be delivered.
The message that was being processed has been moved to the "BAD" folder.
Use the appropriate utilities found in SUPPORT directory of your Exchange CD
to view and manipulate these messages.
The first couple of times, I restored the information store from backup to
fix the problem. But the last couple of times, I went so far as to delete
the database and have Exchange recreate it from scratch. Same problems.
Interestingly, the event viewer shows the subject of the "BAD" message in
question. I forget the first couple, but the last two were "Send your mom a
card and win big," and "She gave you life. What will you give her?"
Any suggestions on what I can do? I can't find out where the messages come
from. I was unable to use mdbvu32 to view the messages. Is it really
possible for these messages to corrupt the Exchange database? Is there
something else I should be looking at?
Exchange Server 5.0, sp2.
